PS Connect Hosts Inaugural C3 Awards


Three winners are slated to be announced for the 2020 Contractor Community Champion (C3) Awards at Technology Publishing Co.’s PaintSquare Connect, a signature virtual event for the protective and commercial coatings industries.

The awards are sponsored by industrial equipment supplier, HoldTight Solutions (Houston) and PaintSquare Connect.

About the Awards

According to HoldTight, the objective of the campaign is to highlight companies that have continuously sought out opportunities to do better for their communities, have demonstrated kindness and selflessness, all without requesting recognition.

For its inaugural year, the awards are focusing on what companies did to combat the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, the campaign is encouraging these types of companies to create and share their own original content inspired by the stories of how they supported local businesses, employees and essential workers during the health crisis. Participants interested in competing have been asked to tag personal videos or photos on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ContractorChampions or #C3Awards, in addition to tagging one of the sponsors, HoldTight or PaintSquare.

  • Email campaigns;
  • Ads;
  • Award merchandise; and
  • Social media posts.

The awarded contractors will also have their logo listed on the C3 Award, receive recognition on the C3 Awards landing page and name included on all award-related press releases.

Winners are slated to be announced on Nov. 11 at 1:30 p.m. EDT, by Ken Rossy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, HoldTight Solutions, within Track 3, Surface Preparation, during the HoldTight Contractor Champions/C3 Awards Ceremony. Nominees and award winners will be highlighted and rewarded.
